Meet Annie, newest member of High Charity's resident gang "The Gophers."
The daughter of a fallen Acolyte, Annie has chosen her own path, one that walks the line between who her family wants her to learn to be and who she feels called to become. She sees a different future for herself, one, she believes, empowered by her own free will.
But her Ma is keeping secrets from her. When Annie and her best friend Mary are tasked with stealing a magic token from a rival gang member, Annie finds herself witness to the arrival of what will become High Charity's greatest enemy and the breaking of a friendship.
